Informative, interesting

I'm impressed with the knowledge shared in this podcast. Information is always interesting, deep, and well expressed.

1-dimensional, unsophisticated, superficial

Where’s the skepticism? the in-depth analysis? I was told these hosts were journalists, which usually implies some command of the issues. Instead, we get “wow gee whiz gosh ain’t that surprising huh weird what’ll happen next I don’t know oh well guess we’ll have to wait and see.” Two stars for effort, Star Tribune, but the product is about as lousy as the rest of the paper.

Simpsons lol ,

Great analysis!

Smart, informed commentary on national and state politics from a Minnesota perspective.
